The Villains, coached by Koby Unser, have had a great season so far defeating the Battlefords in the first round of provincial playoffs.
They played with heart taking the first game of that series 8-3. They advanced to the second round where they faced Meadow Lake Stampeders in game one at home on Saturday to determine the Northern champion. The winner will go on to face the south champion series against either Swift Current or Yorkton. They were down early in the first 3-0, but came out hard in the second period getting on the scoreboard when Nolan Blythe found the posts. The Villains were plagued with penalties and were able to fend off the Stampeder power play for the most part in the third. They were down but not out when in the third they had a late surge and Brayden Skene scored the Villains second goal. Josh Olson was stellar in net turning away 41 of the 48 shots he faced.
The team will travel to Meadow Lake next Saturday for game two of the series having to make up a five-point deficit. Good Luck to the Villains.
